I am delighted to announce that one of my pieces, 'Summertime', has been accepted for Art4Macmillan, a prestigious art auction to be held at the offices of Michelmores Solicitors at Woodwater House, Pynes Hill, Exeter in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support on 17th October 2014. It is hoped that the event will raise in excess of £10,000 in this its first year and become a flagship event for the Charity.
The event will start with drinks and canapés being served during the viewing period from 6pm. At 7.30pm fifty lots will be auctioned by Daniel Goddard of Bearnes, Hampton & Littlewood auctioneers. My piece, which is lot number 39, is a mixed media painting inspired by the view from Dunkery Beacon, Exmoor in August. Artists are being encouraged to attend the event and I am hoping to be there.
The full auction catalogue is available on the Michelmores website at michelmores.com/events/art4macmillan and there are also details on the Art4Macmillan Facebook page at facebook.com/Art4Macmillan. Bids will be accepted by email prior to the auction. If you would like to attend the evening, or to find out more about the event, please contact Saskya Liney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Art4Macmillan auction was a great success, with a total of £10,000 raised for MacMillan Cancer Support.
